Here is an interview with Dave Brown Jr. ("Amazing Race 20"):

Describe what you do: I have served in a variety of capacities as an officer for the Wisconsin Army National Guard, including Blackhawk Helicopter Pilot, Military Intelligence Officer and Assistant Professor of Military Science for the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

How will these skills help you win The Race? The obvious response would be the ability to cope and manage excessive stressors, and physical fitness due to the nature of the challenges. But persistence and attention to detail seem to be the attributes most essential for success.

Three words to describe you: Motivated, resourceful and aggressive.

Favorite hobbies: Socializing, boating, fitness and traveling.

What famous person reminds you of yourself? Bill Clinton — we share a common affinity for music, politics, academics and socializing.

What famous person reminds you of your teammate? Marilyn Monroe — being vivacious, beautiful and the center of attention. 

What is the accomplishment you are most proud of? Having graduated from undergraduate studies in three years while being a young father (unexpectedly), a full-time employee and serving in the National Guard.

What scares you most about traveling? Being disoriented in an unfamiliar environment without knowing the language.

What excites you most about traveling? Experiencing foreign cultures and "once-in-a-lifetime" experiences.

Pet peeve about your teammate: Rachel is a persistent optimist which, for a realist can be annoying and overwhelming.

What country and place would you most like to visit and why? Russia, due to the historical significance of the Cold War and prevalence of vodka!

What do you hope to accomplish by running The Race (other than winning one million bucks)? Travel, communication and competition. Traveling to exotic locations while honing our communication skills and improving upon our relationship.
